about

Southeast Asia consists of the countries of Brunei, Burma, Cambodia, East Timor, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, the Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, and Vietnam. Historically, U.S. policy and diplomacy with Southeast Asia is defined by U.S. interests in the region, whether it's maintaining free lanes of communication through the South China Sea, gaining access to the resources and markets of Southeast Asia, or containing the spread of Communism. Since World War II, the U.S. has constantly been involved in conflicts in the region: providing material and financial support for France during the First Indochina War, direct involvement in the Vietnam War, providing support to Thailand during the Third Indochina War, and the declaration that Southeast Asia is the second-front in the war on terror after September 11. The A to Z of United States-Southeast Asia Relations identifies the key issues, individuals, and events in the history of U.S.-Southeast Asia relations and places them in the context of the complex and dynamic regional strategic, political, and economic processes that have fashioned the American role in Southeast Asia. This is done through a chronology, a bibliography, an introductory essay, appendixes, and several hundred cross-referenced dictionary entries on key persons, places, events, institutions, and organizations.
Donald E. Weatherbee is the Donald S. Russell Distinguished Professor Emeritus at the University of South Carolina.

Editorial Reviews

From Abdullah Badawi, the current Prime Minister of Malaysia, to the Zone of Peace, Freedom, and Neutrality (ZOPFAN), a 1971 Malaysian initiative in the spirit of the Nonalignment Movement, this historical dictionary presents alphabetical, cross-referenced entries offering explanatory definitions of those persons, issues, events, and institutions that Weatherbee (emeritus, U. of South Carolina) judges significant in shaping the course of US bilateral and multilateral policies in the Southeast Asian region (which includes Brunei, Burma, Cambodia, East Timor, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, the Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, and Vietnam) over the past six decades. Also included are an introductory essay, a chronology, and a bibliography. This is a paperback reprint of a book originally titled Historical Dictionary of United States - Southeast Asia Relations.
